Bike Week 2013 begins and ends with Witney events

May 28th, 2013

It’s National Bike Week on 15-22 June. As always, Witney will be hosting a few events to mark the occasion.

It all begins with a gentle ride to Aston for tea and cake. If you fancy taking a trip out on bridle paths and quiet country lanes, to have cake in an idyllic Oxfordshire village, then you should come along and join other riders of any age and skill, leaving from St Mary’s on Church Green at 10am on Saturday 15 June. We’ll go at a leisurely pace, and hope to be back by 1pm.

At the other end of the week on Saturday 22 June, we’ll tour south and west Witney and imagine how it might become a cycletopia. Starting at 3pm at the Buttercross, we’ll looking at the existing bike infrastructure, then end up at a pub in town to discuss the improvements we’d like to see.

We’ll announce mid-week events here as and when they’re arranged. Don’t forget that there’s even more events planned in Oxford!
